You do not really need a power adapter.

Power off. Press and hold # while applying power, when prompted press 123456789*0#, when prompted press 2 to erase config.

Note: you MUST be connected to a valid network with firmware files on TFTP server when doing this.

Re: reset to factory 7960

Hello Paolo,

I have problem with resetting the phone

One of the 7960 phones, which I am trying to reset, the phone doesnt ask for ""Reset key sequence detected", but directly reboots. I tried many times, but I feel it doesn't consider # key. Can you please suggest, some method to reset the phone.

Check the TFTP log and serve the needed files to the phone.
